I remember running across a version with vocals on Youtube but I can't find it anymore. Anyone remember that one? thx
Kind of ashamed to admit but I didn't actually know this was a train until hearing those lyrics
(now who is going to record Flèche d'Argent?)
That's probably a suitable job for the second best guitarist in the world, Emmet Ray.
That's it thanks!
Didn't Steve Miller already do that one? I think it was the parenthetical title of "Jet Airliner." 😉
Original discussion here:
Cool find Wim. There's another article linked to the one you posted, goes deeper into the whole history of the train:
Django seemed to have liked trains. First Mystery Pacific then Golden Arrow.
As a major star in the thirties in Paris and London Django most likely was a regular on the Golden Arrow.
Funny how we come to know about things, but I remember as a kid many years ago my brother had a little Golden Arrow in his train set. Trains were not really my thing but somehow the memory of that one stuck; maybe it was because I always liked all things French....
